Dennis - MC DJ About Me

We don’t just provide entertainment... We create it!

Dennis - MC DJ

Dennis is originally from New Jersey where he broke into the professional Mobile DJ scene. Although he does not have a music degree or was never in a band, Dennis was always the guy that handled the music. From turning his parents garage into a make shift club early in high school to hosting “house” parties in college and huge backyard events, it was all about the music. “DennisFest” was his brain child. It encompassed a live band, a ton of people, fireworks and Dennis spinning the tunes for an annual all-day/all-night party at his house. Like most mobile DJ’s, Dennis started working for a company. He listened to the advice of his family and friends and went off on his own creating Life’s A Party DJ Entertainment. Dennis has a passion and respect for what he does. His enjoyment comes from people having fun at his parties. His business model was simple: give people exactly what they want, involve them in the planning process, and deliver the best performance. In June 2009, it was apparent that he shared many of the same business philosophies and visions as Vinny and Diane. Dennis decided to bring his DJ business over to Split Second Sound DJ Services. Together, they have embodied the spirit of a full service company that goes beyond just being a DJ. Dennis is also involved in charitable events that give back to the Charlotte community. He is one of the organizers of an annual golf outing that benefits A Child's Place here in Charlotte, NC. A Child’s Place works to erase the impact of homelessness on children and their education. Dennis also regularly volunteers his services to the Muscular Dystrophy Association. He has provided entertainment and was the MC for the Stride and Ride event, brought the Wii party to the Muscle Team event at the Bank of America stadium, and does a Dance Party for the MDA summer camp.

North Carolina Mountain Wedding
Posted on: September-11, 2016 | Post By: Dennis - MC DJ Mercurio
On Saturday September 3, 2016 I was at Overlook Barn located in Beech Mountain, NC for Jessica and Joey's wedding.  There is something amazing about being on the top of a mountain where one can see for miles, add a wedding and it makes for an amazing and memorable day.The wedding ceremony took place on the field adjacent to the barn and the door was a nice touch.  After the ceremony, guests enjoyed cocktail hour outside while taking in the breath taking view of the mountains.Prior to the ceremony Jessica took some photos inside the barn.  My DJ equipment was set up in the loft which afforded me a birds eye view and the perfect angle to capture her and the rustic elegance of the barn.  Once cocktail hour finished the guests were invited inside the barn.  It was their first time seeing it decorated and I enjoyed observing their reactions.  You could feel the magic in the air.  Once the formal introductions finished it was time for Jessica and Joey's first dance as husband and wife.  This pic below displays how they incorporated decor and attire into the barn setting, especially Joey and his groomsmen who wore suspenders.During their first dance was the moment that felt as if we were all a part of a movie, living it instead of watching it.Once dinner was over the party kicked in with dancing and guests enjoying the outdoors where s'mores...  read more »

MDA Summer Camp 2014
Posted on: September-20, 2014 | Post By: Dennis - MC DJ Mercurio
Reading my blog you see a common theme of me volunteering my DJ services to the Muscular Dystrophy Association.  I have been doing it since moving to the Charlotte area almost 10 years ago.Summer Camp is by far the most exciting event for the kids and as soon as it is over the begin counting down the days until next year.It is always an honor and a pleasure to help the MDA and seeing so many smiling faces is the greatest reward.  Over time I got to know some of the kids and their families.For the past two years the Dance Party had a black light theme with the kids, counselors and volunteers having a blast.Towards the end of the Dance Party is the graduation for the campers that have reached the age where they're not returning next year.  Counselor's always have amazing things to say about their graduates and it's very emotional.  We play the same 3 songs to close out the party each year....  read more »

New Town Elementary School End of Year Party
Posted on: June-21, 2014 | Post By: Dennis - MC DJ Mercurio
As another school year closes I had the pleasure to be a part of the New Town Elementary School end of year party.  It was very HOT that afternoon and that did not stop the fun.Many vendors turned out with food, drinks along with ice cream and shaved ice (thank goodness).The kids and the parents had a blast dancing to some of their favorite songs.It is very important to play music that is appropriate for all ages.The challenge comes up when the older kids ask for songs that are not appropriate.I will not just say NO to someone, I will advise them that it's not on our playlist and lets think of another song.This works every time and everyone is happy, especially the person that requested the song.Here are some pictures from the event:...  read more »

Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden wedding ceremony and reception
Posted on: June-20, 2014 | Post By: Dennis - MC DJ Mercurio
Recently I had the pleasure to help facilitate an amazing wedding at Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden.The ceremony was in the White Garden and the weather was perfect.Patrick Maloy was the minister and his wife Dottie was the ceremony coordinator and together they are an amazing combination.  "Calm Blue Water" is their slogan and it's what they want their Brides and Grooms to think about during the ceremony rehearsal and the ceremony itself.Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden is a beautiful and the facility shuts down prior to the event, leaving just the Bride/Groom and all of their guests.Alison and David were a pleasure to work with and the wedding day was a lot of fun.Family and friends came together and really enjoyed themselves.The wedding cake looked amazing and yes the flowers are edible although I didn't test the theory:At DSBG, look up and take a look at the dome:...  read more »

River Run Country Club Wedding on 5-24-14
Posted on: June-10, 2014 | Post By: Dennis - MC DJ Mercurio
River Run Country Club located in Davidson, NC is a beautiful location for any event.On May 24, 2014 myself and Charlie were facilitating the event together.Neely and Justin were a lot of fun to work with and her Dad was a LOT of fun.Below is a pic from their Daddy/Daughter dance.Neely was really involved in dance when she was young, her Dad would 'practice' her routines with her.  For their dance they did one of the old routines.  It brought the house down, everyone loved it.Something that is so simple can and does have a big impact on a wedding.I encourage the couple I work with to do something that's a little different.  It helps to make each wedding unique in it's own way.The night was fun, the guests danced and had fun.Engaging the guests in a non-disruptive way ensures that the party is great and we are playing the music that the guests want to hear.Departure with a sparkler send off:*Wish I got a better pic but I don't want to get in the way*...  read more »

Sunday January 19, 2014 was the Sweet 16 party for Sophia.  The party was at the Southa Charlotte Banquet Center which was transformed with decor that was coordinated by Diana, Sophia's mom.  You would have thought that a company was hired to deck out the place.  Kudos on the decor!The party was amazing, lots of dancing, great food and a happy crowd!This party was a lot of fun to be involved with, the planning was on point and the end result is a Sweet 16 party that the family and friends will remember forever!...  read more »

Posted on: January-06, 2014 | Post By: Dennis - MC DJ Mercurio
This past New Year's Eve I was at The Big Chill for a 60th birthday party for Ellen.I have had the pleasure of getting to know Ellen.  As I spoke with the other vendors that worked with her they all had the same experience and felt the same about her.  She is a very sweet and compassionate woman and I was honored to be a part of her special night.There was an amazing turnout at the party, filled with family and friends that adored Ellen.It was one of the best NYE events that I have ever been a part of in DJing.It was a pleasure working with Allen from Crow Alley Films and the guys from The Professional Photography Group.The Big Chill was decked out and the decorations looked amazing!Guests had a blast!  Balloon drop at Midnight!Candy Bar…Cake pops and cake shots from The Wow Factor Cakes!It was an amazing party for an amazing woman and a night that will be remembered for a very long time!More pics:...  read more »

On October 5, 2013 we were at The Ritz in Charlotte, NC.It's an amazing location, top notch service and a wonderful staff.Caroline and Cory had their ceremony on location.Seeing a trend and I will say it's hot on Pintrest right now...No need to brag on the food at The Ritz- it's AMAZING!  I enjoy watching them serve dinner.  You will not see them cary out the meal on a tray. NO- each server carries two plates and with precision they place the plate in front of the guests.  Each time I DJ at The Ritz I hear at least one guest say how cool it is.On to the party and what a party it was!Guests had a LOT of fun!  Caroline changed out of her wedding dress and put on a cocktail dress.I played "Sweet Caroline" and the place went nuts.Everyone jammed the dance floor and mobbed Caroline and Cory.It was a night to remember, a fun wedding, guests had a blast and danced the night away!The last song of the night- Journey's "Don't Stop Believing"Weddings like these I pinch myself as I know how fortunate I am to not only have the talent to DJ but to execute the flow of a wedding.  I don't just stand behind my gear and push buttons, a lot goes into a successful wedding and most of it the guests don't see or know about.All they know was...  read more »

Charlotte wedding at Byron's South End
Posted on: September-30, 2013 | Post By: Dennis - MC DJ Mercurio
On Saturday September 28, 2013 I had the pleasure of being a part of Aaron and Andrea's wedding at Byron's South End.This was unique in that I was a part of a band/DJ combo along with "5 On Sunday's"They had a different sound to them and kept it 'young and hip' while also playing some classic songs.Aaron and Andrea are very good friends with a couple of the band members and the reception was amazing.Here is a pic of the band and my set-up mixed together.  The sound was perfect and not the crazy loud sound of a band.  Having both is the 'best of both worlds' scenario and really takes the entertainment to a whole new level.People were on the floor all night long as we switched back and forth from myself and the band.It's awesome when guests come up to me and say that this was one of the best weddings that they were at.  We all work hard to bring the best performance we can week after week.  ...  read more »

Saturday September 7, 2013 I was at the Renaissance South Park for the wedding of Michelle and Jose Rafael.The weather we perfect for the ceremony in the courtyard.The Bride and Groom shared a special first dance and wanted to thank the gusts right after.  Not the usual flow of events.  Michelle thanks guests for coming, being there for their special day and look forward to everyone being a part of their family. In fact, she announced that their family was growing and that they're pregnant.Wow!  Can't say in all my years of being a part of weddings that I have ever heard that before.The crowd erupted in applause, shouts of joy and cheers.  Family members were in tears.It was a very special moment and one that I'm glad that I was a part of.The reception was great and people enjoyed the night but the baby talk was what everyone kept talking about.  ...  read more »

On Saturday May 18th myself and my assistant Lydia had the pleasure of rockin' out with Caroline and Ryan Byrnes at the Peninsula Club.What an amazing wedding and it was a blast from start to finish.Nicki Cloud was the planner and a pleasure to work with, she is very attentive to detail.Speak of detail- Grainne from the Peninsula Club is on top of the details at each wedding I have worked with her.The crowd was amazing and couldn't wait to get to the dancing- check out the cool monogram, the pic doesn't do it justice in person.People were getting CRAZY on the dance floor.Here is Lydia having fun...We moved the crowd all night long, jumping from different genres and music styles.  The guests had so much fun and this was one of the wedding where it could have gone on for hours.  I always suggest we end on a super high note vs trying to drag it on longer.  I love it when so many guests come up and say "This is the BEST wedding I was at"  make me feel great.After the dancing we hustled the crowd outside for sparklers.Remember earlier when I said that Grainne was awesome- he she is in action getting ready to light the sparklers.Here comes the Bride and Groom!!!A last kiss before they head off......  read more »

May 21,3013 found me and Jonah at the Bank of America stadium, home of the Carolina Panthers for the MDA Muscle Team event.Vinny Esposito, Panthers Game DJ, was onsite with the Split Second Sound van working on music.Hundreds of people showed up to support MDA, bidding on silent auction items along with a live auction and general donations.  Muscle Team brought in over $300,000!Hannibal, a crowd favorite, was amazing as usual and had everyone asking themselves "How did he do that?"  Muscle Team® is unlike any other charity event in Charlotte. This is not a formal, sit-down, black tie affair. The evening consists of fun activities, interactive entertainment, a variety of fine food and beverage stations and specialty auctions. The Muscle Team®event gathers top athletes and pairs them with a MDA® buddy, a local child living with a neuromuscular disease....  read more »

Beach wedding at Jetton Park, Cornelius NC
Posted on: June-08, 2013 | Post By: Dennis - MC DJ Mercurio
Saturday May 25th was a beautiful day for Beth and Chris' wedding.  What made this one a little more special was the location- Jetton Park in Cornelius, NC.  The ceremony was set on the beach.  Jetton Park is a public park part of the Mecklenberg County parks system so there were on-lookers both on lad and in the water.So how did we provide the music?  Well of course a generator BUT not one of those crazy loud ones.  This is a generator that's certified for a campsite and has all the power needed for my ceremony system.  My QSC K8 is 1,000w of power and way more than enough clear and crisp sound.The generator is far enough away from the ceremony that the music totally drowns out the sound of it.The reception was at the multi use building not to far from the beach front and even the cake kept with the theme...A picture perfect ceremony followed by a fun reception made it a great day!FYI;  If you need a ring bearer, this guy may be able to help:...  read more »

Saturday May 4, 2013 brought myself and my assistant Benjamin to Lake Norman to Trump National for the wedding reception of Elaine and Dick.  Each wedding is unique in its own way, some stick out in my memory more than others, this is one I will NEVER forget.  Here is the Happy Couple...The venue was Trump National with the ballroom newly renovated and the atrium enclosed.  Sitting right on Lake Norman with a priceless backdrop.Elaine and Dick wanted a "big party" with all of their family and friends.  The reception was very memorable from the introductions to their first dance, their welcome was funny and their Maid of Honor's toast was just hysterical.  She's the one that got the both of them together.It was a magical day and really an honor in getting to know Elaine and Dick.Everyone had so much fun with a lot of love and joy in the room."Cheeseburger in Paradise"As I said earlier, this is a wedding that I will remember for ever.Elaine and Dick were not shy about their age, she is 73 and he is 75.  Both are full of energy, ride Harley and are just an amazing couple....  read more »

On Saturday April 27, 2013 myself and my assistant Lydia were at Byron's South End for Stacy and Dan's ceremony and reception.  The Atrium is a great location for the ceremony and it has that industrial look but adding pipe and drape really can soften it up.Here is a look form above prior to the ceremony...Of course every wedding is about the Bride and the Groom and this was no different, except for one thing, the CAKE...Gail from Cheesecake Etc was the mastermind behind this amazing creation.  It was yellow cake with chocolate frosting.  Someone PLEASE get me a glass of milk.  There was so much chatter about the cake and EVERYONE raved about the cake and of course, it was delish!Seemed that so much was centered around the cake in terms of the color scheme."Let them eat their cake" and then have a great dance party!It was an awesome day from start to finish.  Erica Stawick was the planner and she knocked it out of the park.  Amanda Pagano from Isabel's Corner shot the video and I'm looking forward to seeing the clips....  read more »

Charlotte Wedding DJ at Center Stage NoDa
Posted on: April-20, 2013 | Post By: Dennis - MC DJ Mercurio
On Saturday March 23, 2013 I was at Center Stage NoDa for the wedding od Matt and Stacy Peronne.  It was spectacular in many ways as two music genre's collided to form this union."She's A Little Country, He's A Little Rock n Roll" was the theme and it was evident everywhere.I enjoy when a couple takes a theme and really embraces it thru the entire event.  From vintage decorations to subtle hits of the theme.Instead of using a 'charger' (dish that goes under the dinner plate)- they used these record but had created labels for their special day.If you have never been to Center Stage NoDa- it's a 'warehouse' in an eclectic part of Charlotte, NC that's quickly gaining popularity.  I enjoy working there and look forward to see how people decorate it.  It's a very unique location and perfect for a wedding.Below is how 'pipe and drape' with lights behind it can add to the decor.Putting uplights behind the cake to color wash the wall.Matt was full of surprises and brought the 'Rock n Roll' to the wedding.  He sang at the ceremony but the big surprise was him singing to Stacy at the reception.  It was a magical moment and one that they and their guests will not forget....  read more »

On March 23, 2013 I had the pleasure of being the being MC/DJ for Erin and Brooks Felt.  Rolling Hills Country Club looked amazing inside and out and the weather was beautiful.  The couple decided the wanted the cake out in the Fairway Room, a first for me and I have been on location for countless weddings.  I never saw it set up in that way but it looked amazing.Erin and Brooks were amazing to work with and together we worked on the vision of their wedding day and reception.  Anyone can show up and play music.  We pride ourselves in getting to know our brides and grooms, interacting with their family and friends the day of and I feel part of the family by time the wedding comes. "You Know You Make Me Want To Shout..."  I think that the guests dropped their forks and hit the floor and didn't stop.  This was one of those wedding that could have went on for hours, people had a blast.After a quick photo with Erin and Brooks they headed out the door for a sparkler send off.Congratulations Erin and Brooks!I say it all the time- I am blessed to be a part of a family's special day, each wedding is different and each has it's own impression on me.  ...  read more »

Daniel Stowe Botanical Wedding

The White Garden at Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden was the perfect setting for a sunset wedding ceremony.  I have had the opportunity to be a part of many weddings at the garden but a sunset wedding was a first.  It was late in the Fall, the air was a bit crisp but the sky was beautiful.The set up was typical of a wedding ceremony but cafe lights were added.As the sun was setting the sky was the canvas for a perfect painting.I set up my ceremony system in the back corner, out of the way and almost out of sight.But I was able to hear the reactions of family and friends as they entered the garden and got their first look.I have done many weddings at DSBG but have not done a sunset wedding and it was stunning.During the reception I kept hearing guests talking about it.  The reception was amazing, lots of dancing and tons of fun.  At the end of the reception I could hear guests talk about how much fun they had, how great the day was and even talking about how beautiful the ceremony was.It was a perfect day!Here are some photos of the reception......  read more »

The Ballantyne Hotel was the location for Paris and AJ's wedding.  A wonder wedding from the start to the end.  I had the pleasure of getting to know Paris and her family and they invited me to their home for our initial meeting.  We had an instant connection as Paris spoke about her dream wedding day. Meeting my bride and groom is important to me and I am able to get a good read on them and the atmosphere of the party they desire. The decor was very warm and inviting and the head table was like a huge family table. AJ wrote, composed, sang and recorded the First Dance song.  He sounds amazing and someone that knows music needs to take a listen to his work. Check out this cake, just beautiful and it was delicious. The party and the dancing was important to Paris.  Family and friends came from across the country and she wanted to have a fun party. These guys were having a blast. Music at a wedding is different that the music at a party.  The guests are various ages, different music...  read more »

On Saturday December 8, 2012 I had the pleasure of helping the MDA - Muscular Dystrophy Association of Charlotte, NC.  Each year the MDA with sponsorship from local companies host a Family Holiday Party Brunch.Pictured above are some of the volunteers from Nation Gypsum Co here in Charlotte, NC.They arrive at 6am and begin preparing the brunch.The event is at St. Sarkis Apostolic Church who donate the space for the party and use of their kitchen.Lucas Coe and his amazing team from the MDA office do a wonderful job with putting on this event.The families arrive to a festive atmosphere with the room decorated and background music provided by myself of Split Second Sound.  There are a LOT of presents and prizes that are donated.  Lots of fun with the assistants helping pull the raffle tickets and hand out the prizes.The highlight of the morning is a visit from Santa!It is an honor and a pleasure to help at this and other MDA events.  The kids are amazing, full of love and joy.  ...  read more »

Recent Kudos...
Posted on: October-17, 2012 | Post By: Dennis - MC DJ Mercurio
The following is from a recent Bride who's wedding was at The Charlotte City Club...Dennis with Split Second Sound was great for our wedding. He kept the dance floor full all night and everyone enjoyed the party. He met with us beforehand to go over everything we wanted and expected and he called a month out and a week out to make sure I was comfortable and make sure the planning was going smoothly. My crazy guests requested a song on our "do not play" list and he checked with me before he played it (fine, let them Wobble!). Would definitely recommend!  - 5 stars across the board.I tell my Brides and Grooms to allow the vendors that they carefully hand selected take care of them.  I like to call it "Being a guest at your own wedding..."We work hard to make everyone's event special and tailored exactly the way that they want it and I get really excited when I get reviews back such as the above....  read more »

Weddings at Ballantyne Hotel
Posted on: October-16, 2012 | Post By: Dennis - MC DJ Mercurio
Split Second Sound had the Ballantyne Hotel covered last Saturday.  Myself and Lydia were upstairs while Joey and Jordan were downstairs.  Once again Alli Hall had the staff at the Ballantyne Hotel running on all cylinders, very efficient.Hannah and Trey had a wonderful reception that was intimate and cozy.My highlight was young Harrison telling jokes after dinner, first time I had a young stand up comedian at a wedding and he was a hit!Got to work with Julie from "In His Image" photography- always a pleasure!Take a look at the pic below- two uplights that framed the big picture window... One of our top assistants- Lydia....  read more »

Wedding at The Duke Mansion
Posted on: October-02, 2012 | Post By: Dennis - MC DJ Mercurio
Last Saturday I was at The Duke Mansion- the sky opened up right before the ceremony but that didn't put a damper on the wedding day.  The staff at The Duke had chairs set up under the covered porch already set up in case it rained. Great planning and having a plan B in place.  Gina and the staff were amazing and as usual were always one step ahead.This wedding was unique- We did the introductions, first dance, toasts and the blessing.  No other formalities during the night and it's exactly what the bride and groom wanted.  Delivering the experience that our clients ask for is what it's about, it's their day.Dinner was spread out thru the mansion and people kept gravitating to the dance floor.  Once people were finished the floor was packed and the party was in full swing.A groomsman rapped Ice, Ice Baby (with permission of the bride and groom)- I say that because I didn't know about it prior.  We don't let anyone just grab the mic and say something or sing a song or whatever unless we know about it ahead of time or clear it with our client.  Needless to say he was awesome, knew every word and the crowd loved it.The Bridesmaids had a blast, danced all night and took a moment to pose for a pic.Below is the sparkler send of and a great way to end the night!Each wedding is different, there is no right way to do the formalities, it's...  read more »

Charlotte City Club Wedding
Posted on: October-02, 2012 | Post By: Dennis - MC DJ Mercurio
The Charlotte City Club is an amazing location for a wedding, a great staff run by Nathan Hoffman.  Beautiful venue with breath taking views 31 floors up looking over Charlotte, NC.Carli and Nishant were married at The City Club, followed by dinner then back into to main ballroom for a night of dancing with friends and family.Check out the pic below of the latest dance craze "Gangnam Style" as it's a fun and easy dance.Not sure how to do it- we can show you.The party was amazing and the crowd danced the night away, danced so hard that the floor was shaking.I had the pleasure of working with Jere & Ashley Dotten Photography who capture some amazing shots during the party.  They even snapped a few pic of me in action.  Much appreciated guys- thanks!They caught me behind the booth having fun and doing the Wobble below.  I love it when the young and alder folks get out on the dance floor and get their boogie on.  We don't drag people onto the dance floor, call them out on the mic and we find that they will naturally gravitate to the dance floor.Thanks again Jere and Ashley for the pics!...  read more »

Peninsula Club wedding
Posted on: September-09, 2012 | Post By: Dennis - MC DJ Mercurio
The rain stopped on cue, the ceremony was amazing, Adriane and Billy were married by a Pastor that has been involved with the family for many years.  He has married other family members that I met at the wedding.  The setting was beautiful at The Peninsula Club in Cornelius NC.These guys were a great couple to work with.Now to the party!What a party...  Fun had by all and the crowd was engaged all night.  The music covered many genres and styles.  Weddings are special as two families become one and this was illustrated on the dance floor.  People from Massachusetts on the floor learning line dances and people from the South rocking out to the Drop Kick Murphy's.Weddings today are a blend of ages, cultures and music styles.  We work hard to connect with guests at the event to ensure that everyone has fun! ...  read more »

Rooftop Wedding
Posted on: September-08, 2012 | Post By: Dennis - MC DJ Mercurio
Recently I DJ'd a wedding at the Holiday Inn Rooftop.  I was very hot that day but it didnt stop or slow down the party.  The pic below is the brides Grandparents singing a song to them and they sounded amazing.It was a very special moment and one that everyone will remember.  It's great when there is something unique such as this that occurs at a wedding or event.So for the party- WOW! What a party.  They danced all night and everyone had a blast.  I love it when the young crowd dances to the older music and especially enjoy it when the older folks are out there dancing to Top 40 and other new music.Below is a pic towards the end of the wedding and they had a TON of fun!For no reason the guests picked up the bride and groom and had fun bouncing them in the air....  read more »

A note of Thanks!

It's awesome when I get a personal hand written note of thanks.  I DJ because i love it- creating lifetime memories for people.  I never expect anything from my clients and it's special to get a card.  Myself and the other Split Second Sound DJ's have a love and passion for what we do and it shows in the effort we put forth for every event.  I actually consider myself fortunate and blessed to be a part of our clients special day....  read more »

Uplights will change the look of a room

Adding uplighting to your event will change the look and feel of the room.  We use LED lights as they do not increase the temperature of the room like the older flood light did.  Uplights are available in different color to go with most any decor.  Prior to the uplights this was a stark white wall and now is transformed adding warmth and color to the room.Again the color can be changed to match the decor of the event.The Ballantyne Hotel transformed below.......  read more »

As usual the food was amazing.  The party was rocking and they had us stay late.  I know its a great party when the staff is dancing.  We worked with Indigo Photography, Mimi and Jay are a pleasure to work with.  Danielle was my assistant and she was great.The bride wore blue shoes with a peacock feather, i never seen shoes so amazing!Today Ben and I are heading to the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC for another wedding reception.  Working with Asheville Events who are always fun to work with.I'm expecting more of the same fun and good time as we had last night.I love to DJ and create lasting memories!...  read more »

Saturday September 10th and Saturday September 17 I found myself at the Duke Mansion.  Both weddings had over 100 guests at each event.  The Duke Mansion is a wonderful location for a ceremony and reception plus they have rooms for guests to stay over night. Special thanks to Amanda Pagano from Isabels Corner Video for coming out to shoot us in action last night.  Eye Dialog provided upligts around the room and also had stars and a moon illuminated on the ceiling.The staff at Duke is amazing and lead by Jessica (I'm DJing her wedding in November) and also Dianna, they keep the food service moving in an efficient manner and we keep the music and flow of the event going.Split Second did the first wedding at Duke and we continue to be the number one DJ at the Duke Mansion.Duke Mansion along with Split Second Sound is an amazing combination......  read more »
